Bad student signing up for academy
I've really been wanting to join the fire academy at my school (Butte college, Northern California) but I'm really ambivalent due to my track record with grades. As it's my junior year at this school, I have a 2.1 GPA. Passed my fire classes just fine, and I've got EMT coming up this fall. I don't learn well in a classroom environment, but I can teach a class on something if I'm shown how to do it, or get hands on experience. I am also not the most physically blessed person, being 5-8 130# but I am working on it. I would just like some encouragement or words of wisdom beforehand.
I am a volunteer with the county, but I'm very new and haven't even gotten any form of fire training. I am almost done with a fire science degree, as well. I'm just not a good student so GE is all that's holding me back.
